Ingrid is a Certified Cat Behavior Consultant (CCBC) through The International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants (IAABC). She is also employed at Paws Whiskers and Claws, a feline only veterinary hospital, as a veterinary technician and feline groomer. Ingrid has been working exclusively with cats since 1999. Ingrid operates Fundamentally Feline, providing both in home and phone consultations for clients experiencing behavior challenges with their cat(s). Fundamentally
Feline publishes educational blog content for clients as well as managing Facebook and Twitter pages. In addition to behavior consultations, Ingrid also
makes her own line of feline foraging toys, scratching posts and scratch pads, and litter boxes. Ingrid and her husband Jake will also design and install
custom built vertical space for families.
Perhaps one of the most exciting opportunities was her home, cats, and environmental enrichment expertise being featured on Animal Planet’s Cats101 show, the episode featuring the color-point short hair. Ingrid recently filmed for the website WebMD and created educational videos on proper litter box maintenance and on the prevention and management of hairballs. You may view these segments on Fundamentally Feline’s website. She is also a writer for the IAABC’s Cat Blog. Most recently she has been appointed Co-Director of the Paw Project Georgia chapter, working towards ending the cruel practice of de-clawing cats.
Ingrid’s home was featured in Cat Fancy magazine’s 2008 “Home Issue” showcasing all of the feline friendly accommodations that she and her husband have made to their home. This spread illustrates the aesthetically pleasing ways you can provide for your cats innate basic needs while still having a home the humans can enjoy.
Ingrid currently shares her home with husband Jake, twelve cats and Elsa, a rescued Burmese Mountain Dog.
